Yes, Sweden is the first state to reportedly abolish cash. According to a survey carried out at the beginning of March, a huge percentage (95%) of the country's residents aged 15 to 65 use electronic money, through applications or a card.

The Swedish state to facilitate the citizens designed the Swish app, which is currently reportedly used by 50% of the population. This can of course happen in Sweden as the majority of the population has access to mobile coverage and most transactions are done through contactless transactions. Sweden's culture and adoption of technology combined with the country's high quality of life will play a primary role in making this transition happen.
